“The Black Larry David” Season Finale Episode Skewers the Rachel Dolezal Controversy

Hollywood, CA – “The Black Larry David” (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3837028) ends its first season with “The Trans Racial,” a surrealistic take on the controversy surrounding former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, a Caucasian woman pretending to be African-American.

“Audiences, regardless of their race, are clamoring for more diverse content,” said Ana-Christina Ramon, co-author of the second annual Hollywood Diversity Report by UCLA’s Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies.

Tamika Simpson (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2400301), appears in this episode as the Trans Racial character who can change her ethnic appearance at will.  Simpson’s previous work roles include The Wire (2006), The Shield (2008), Saving Lincoln (2013), and CPR Talent Agency (2015).

This episode also ends the series’ relationship with YouTube.  Future episodes will be exclusively webcast on Oz, a subscription video platform based in Iceland, founded by Reykjavik native Guðjón Már Guðjónsson.

The Black Larry David is one of six computer generated animation series produced by Dwacon® Entertainment (formerly Dwacon, Inc.), a minority- and veteran-owned business.
